Friday Favorites: It's Complicated

Hi folks! These slow days at work are so distracting. Since I'm home, I'm all over the place: three trips to the grocery store a day, doing my nails, allowing my burgeoning crush on Gordon Ramsey to develop as I plop myself in front of BBC America for hours at a time...

But here we are at Friday Favorites, which I've missed and neglected because I have half days on Fridays and lately, well, those have become whole days in which I am out of the door at 9 am and gallivanting. Today's gallivanting has been postponed until I figure out when/ if it is going to rain. So, without any further ado...



Maharani Ring by Iacua Jewelry, $450




Geometric Green Vintage Button Pin, $12




Acrylic Honeycomb Necklace by Brevity, $30




Earrings by Belle Brook, Price upon request




Orbit Cuff Bracelet by Stone Soup Designs, $40

Look at this ... interesting listing I came across on ebay whilst searching for vintage dresses:


Here's the link if you can get past the Psycho [SPOILER alert!] OMG-he-just-turned-the-chair-around-and-it-was-just-a-skeleton-
with-a-wig imagery.

And Forever 21, c'mon! If you're styling a hot young thing and she looks like she has pancake boobs in your dress, why on earth would you think any normal young thing would buy it?


Don't get me wrong; I enjoy Forever 21 (though I know shouldn't). In college, we had a contentious relationship: basically I thought all their clothing was club crap. Then I began to wear dresses and for some reason, their dresses are absolutely the most flattering I own.
